Grab the kids and some popcorn to watch these 12 family Holiday movies available on Amazon Video with your Prime membership.
Last year my daughter and I started a tradition of watching holiday Hallmark movies together. My son recently mentioned his interested, so I figured now would be a good time to create a new family tradition of watching holiday movies together complete with snacks (of course) and maybe drinks for mom and dad.
With only 7-8 more weekends until Christmas, we need to get started on our holiday movie list ASAP.
I browsed the family movie section on Amazon Prime Video and created this watch list.

If you’re wondering if there’s any content that may not be appropriate for your child and their age, I stumbled upon a website called Common Sense Media. This site is a great resource for parents when determining appropriate content for their kids. For example, here is the review for Scrooge.
